Niklas Rådström’s new novel “Boken” (“The Book”) appears to have struck a chord with the Swedish critics. Dagen’s Nyheter’s Jonas Thente calls it “a marvellously beautiful and moving novel” while Svenska Dagbladet’s Josefin Holmström brands it “an indefeasible piece of literature“. Crister Enander of Helsingborg’s Dagblad is similarly enthusiastic: Niklas Rådström’s prose possesses a lustre and acuity that is astounding and uncomparable. I read “Boken” with a mixture of devoutness and entrapped rapture. The prose entices and glistens, shimmers and breathes. It is beautiful and melancholic. It seduces and captivates.
